Bright Lights in the Country


We are delighted to bring ‘One Night In’ to the beautiful Fraser Valley - where the traditions of agricultural farming and backyard barbecues merge seamlessly with fresh urban lifestyle and culinary fare. 

Known for its people, generous of spirit with a heartfelt commitment to community, ‘The Valley’ is the perfect place to host a Gala in support of BC children with special needs. 

We hope this night, filled with bright lights and bright faces, will create a lifetime of memories for our guests, a deeper connection in our community and a future filled with opportunity for all Variety kids.
